Led by Jo Gibson

A return trip to Norris Green Park in North Liverpool saw Matthew, Pauline and Jo tackle the sunken garden to prepare it for its winter planting. Greeted by Helen and Colin of the Friends group, we were soon busy with edging tools, spades, shears, brooms and good-old-fashioned weeding on hands and knees, to tidy the path edges which were very overgrown with grass and weeds. Spot the difference with the before-and-after photos! As we head into winter with continued restrictions on social activities,, our parks and open spaces will be a lifeline for people to spend their leisure time and meet friends and family safely. We're glad to have helped to make this lovely local park a bit nicer for people to enjoy.
